PostSubject: Daniel Victor Murdoch, Ph.D   Tue Mar 17, 2009 12:52 am

Name: Daniel "Danny" Victor Murdoch, Ph.D
Age: 28 years old
Birthday: December 31st, 1928
Birthplace: New York City, New York
Gender: Male

Appearance: With matching dark brown eyes and hair, his features tend much more toward his mother's side of the family than his father's. Standing at about 5 feet 10 inches and with his rather light build he does not make for a very imposing individual when you first meet him. However, he likes to keep himself clean, tidy, and is typically found wearing a black or dark navy pinstriped suit and matching hat. Should he feel the need, he has an overcoat as well. He keeps his hair neither overly long nor so short that it stands up on end. He also has a mustache that he keeps thin also. While working, he switches his suit coat for a white lab coat.

Background: While his father was of Scottish descent and his mother's family came from the Mediterranean territories, both had been born in the United States, and thus so had Daniel. Growing up in New York City, he often heard stories of the daring capers and dastardly deeds of Kid Yorke's Hudson Dusters, Paul Kelly's Five Points Gang, and Thomas "Tanner" Smith's Marginals from his grandfather who had been a detective with the New York City's police department during the turn of the century. The individuals who ran these gangs and the warfare that broke out between rival factions both fascinated and terrified Daniel at the same time. As time passed, the gangs faded away. Or perhaps they grew up. Daniel often collected articles about Brooklyn's own Murder Incorporated who did the dirty work the mob didn't even want to touch. At least that's what Daniel liked to think.

Through sheer determination, Daniel's father became a doctor and was able to provide for his family a life that his father before him could not. Though wealthy, Dr. Murdoch was as much a physician as he was a philanthropist. He gave generously to fledgling organizations designed to assist those in financial need. For his three children, he provided the best private schooling that could be found in Manhattan. Thus, he found it unpleasurable that one of his children was so interested in these hoodlums. So much so that the child wished to become a police officer like his grandfather! Dr. Murdoch simply would not have this and subsequently pushed Daniel toward the sciences. Entering into his post-secondary education at Princeton, Daniel fell in love with psychology and its attempts to quantify human nature. He majored in this science and went on to complete his doctorate. His thesis was entitled, "Behaviorism in Criminals" in which he examined the behavior of prisoners at Trenton State Prison.

Shortly after graduating, he returned to New York where he met with his father and an associate of his. This associate was there to offer Daniel a deal which he almost assuredly could not refuse. This individual had read Daniel's thesis, citing that the limitations of the government regulations had infringed upon what could have been a true manifesto in the art of psychology. It could have blown the works of William James right out of the water. If only he had had the access he desired. This could be afforded to him in a place where such boundaries were not there to limit but merely used as examples to inspire. Rapture.

Daniel whole-heartedly agreed to accompany this man to this fantastic place. After bidding his family farewell, and receiving a blessing from his father, he set out upon a steamer destined for Iceland. When they were a mere 200 miles off the coast of Iceland, the pair, along with several others, lowered a lifeboat into the water, boarded it, and rowed to a solitary lighthouse in the middle of the ocean. There, they entered the bathysphere and were informed who they now worked for...
